The fourth generation of owners/managers provide personal service. For instance, my vegetarian wife got an all vegetarian meal. One friend wanted pork. Another wanted to eat the local beef. I had a little of everything. The quality and quantity of regional specialties that the chefs prepared for us left us more than satisfied and much more than full. We ate in a dining room arranged for just us. If you stay there, you can eat in your private dining room.

Another wonderful hotel, which is within a short drive and which has an excellent rotenburu, outdoor bath, is the Cloud Sea Hotel.
